Shrine of the Holy Grill, an oasis of Edsels

December 15th, 2017 by admin

His first car was an Edsel, bought a month after production ceased, and the dealership wanted it gone so bad they knocked a 1/3rd off the price. It lasted 12 years and 120,000 miles, and then life got in the way until he restored it, won trophies with it, and started collecting more Edsels.

He found and purchased 1960 Edsel Serial Number One – a four-door hardtop coincidentally painted the same Sahara Beige as his first four-door sedan. A lot of the his cars are low-mileage originals, including a black ’58 Citation four-door hardtop that has clocked just 22,000 miles, and a ’59 Corsair two-door hardtop – red, with cream-yellow inserts and a white roof – showing just 16,300 miles

In 1994, Jim’s 1960 Ranger sedan – the first Edsel he ever purchased, 34 years before – earned a Grand National First Prize from the Antique Automobile Club of America. It was the first Edsel ever to be so honored.

I posted about this in June of 2015 when it was still a goal:

In 1915, journalist Emily Post set out from New York to investigate whether it was possible to drive comfortably across the country to San Francisco in an automobile. 7 years later she wrote her book on etiquette

May 15th, 2017 by admin

Emily Post began her career as a writer at the age of thirty-one. Her romantic stories of European and American society were serialized in Vanity Fair, Collier’s, McCall’s, and other popular magazines. Many were also successfully published in book form.

Originally published by Collier’s Weekly, By Motor To The Golden Gate describes her travels with her cousin Alice and her son as she embarks on the 27-day car trip across America, complete with the elements that make any road trip memorable: the nauseating climbs along muddy roads, the elegance of stylish downtown hotels and the “eccentric topsy-turviness” of Midwestern cities.

convertible Super Bee with yellow stripe tires, the 1968 show circuit car

February 23rd, 2017 by admin

The origin of the name, “Super Bee”, has its basis in the “B” Body designation pertinent to Chrysler’s mid-sized cars, including the Road Runner and Charger.

The interior of a 1926 Rolls Royce Phantom Brougham De Ville, only 40,000 miles since new. Probably the most expensive Rolls Royce ever made

December 24th, 2015 by admin

All of the woodwork for the interior, panels, cabinets and window trim was done in the Clark shop, but some of the more elaborate carving was done in London with the elaborate paintings of cherubs on the headliner done by a Frenchman living there.

Mr C W Gasque was an American businessman of French ancestry living in London who was a director of F W Woolworth & Co and whose wife was a Woolworth heiress.. The car was to be a surprise present for his wife and the body was certainly one of the most wonderfully crafted and exotic ever built on a motor car. Mr Gasque obviously had great confidence in the taste and the integrity of Mr Barnett as he left both the design details and the price to his discretion. Mr Gasque’s only stipulation was that the interior should be in the antique French style.

Mr Barnett visited London’s Victoria & Albert Museum where he saw a Sedan Chair which had belonged to Marie Antoinette. This was a miniature carriage, designed to be carried by two strong men, and it had a painted ceiling which inspired him to commission a French artist to paint a similar ceiling for the new car. This ceiling, which is painted with charming amoretti and pink roses, was raised slightly to enable the installation of hidden lighting. The unknown artist also painted – very much in the style of Angelica Kauffman or Adam Buck the ovals and roundels on the quartered satinwood veneers to the doors, central division and revolving vanities.

The central division has the appearance of a highly decorative antique commode or chiffoniere which is raised on square tapered legs with spade feet, the central two door bow fronted cupboardof which conceals two shelves with a decanter, a flask, a silver salver, glasses and a porcelain bonbonnière.This cupboard is flanked on each side by hidden doors concealing the tapestry covered, gilt metal framed occasional seats.. This elaborate division is surmounted by a small French ormolu clock and two French porcelain vases containing gilt metal and enamel flowers. The central part of the interior is, in fact, more English than French in feeling and is typical of the late Victorian or Edwardian fashion for painted satinwood furniture in the style of a century before.

It is most probable that this body was the most costly ever built on a Rolls-Royce chassis. and therefore that the complete car was the most expensive Rolls-Royce ever built. Neither Mr or Mrs Gasque had any idea of how this magnificent gift looked until it was delivered to their London residence in April 1927. Incidentally, this ten month gap between the start and the finish of the construction of the coachwork is about three times the normal time taken by coachbuilders for bodies of similar style..

The Gasques were to enjoy their splendid carriage for only 18 months as Mr Gasque died in October 1928. The car was put into storage where it remained until the death of Mrs Gasque in 1952

Scam warning, bikes not for sale in Australia are listed for sale in Berlin

October 24th, 2015 by admin

Andreas in Germany found this Indian listed for sale in Berlin, but the price was too good, and asked on the Antique Motorcycle Club facebook page for help, and just that simple, learned that it had been sold in Australia abotu 6 months ago and the current owner is very happy with it and it’s not for sale, and then, the motorcycle shop owner that worked on it a couple months ago verified it’s happy home status in Australia.

So be careful out there. Too many scams are going on

1970 Lancia Fulvia

May 5th, 2015 by admin

It may seem odd for an Italian company to choose the English expression Hi.Fi. One has to remember that when it was chosen Hi.Fi. was the new specification for grammophone records giving a much better sound than traditional records. So Hi.Fi. was an indication of quality and the latest technology while at the same time indicating a high degree of fedility to the make

HF Squadra Corsa was founded in 1963. From that, competition models seem to have been attributed the HF status and logo with the Elephants.

“HF” or “Hi.Fi.”, standing for “high fidelity” as you say, signified membership of a slightly exclusive club, as designated by the Lancia Company, for customers who had demonstrated their fidelity to the marque by serially purchasing a certain number of new Lancias (five).

Later again they started sticking HF as a logo on higher performance variants of production cars to designate their sporting pedigree.

Let’s start with the elephant. There are contrasting stories and legends regarding the origin of this elephant, including the simple “the elephant never forgets”. We do know that in 1953 the then Managing Director of Lancia, Gianni Lancia, chose it as a good luck token for the Company’s first racing appearances. The symbol of the galloping elephant apparently originates in Eastern mythology as an auspicious emblem or symbol of victory, providing the trunk is stretched forward. This is how the elephant chosen by Gianni Lancia was drawn, first in light blue and later as now in bright red.

Scureia Lancia competed in Giro di Sicily 1952. They used Aurelia Serie 2 with a lowered roof line. One of the drivers – Enrico Anselmi – had used an elephant as a “sign” on his car for some years. He allowed the Lancia team to use “his” elephant. That was the first time the elephant was used on a Lancia competition car.

Lancia mechanics painted an elephant on the side of the Mille Miglia cars to take the mickey out of Ferrari and their prancing horse.

On the practical side you have small discounts from the price list, as well as on replacement parts and repairs. Once you were also made partaker of exclusive events for the presentation of new models, often abroad, remember Cannes and Nice (FR) for the launch Dedra, Sevilla (SP) for Kappa. Large hotels and large gala in a tuxedo with international cabaret stars, the only discounted price for the night … Ah, You found each appointment in hotel room, a tribute Luis Vuitton, up to compose a nice set of bags …

From old men to young men, the passing along of 1966 kombi VWs is a very cool and rare thing, but here are two examples

January 5th, 2015 by admin

Here is the story straight from Facebook:

Ray is completing the transaction for this 1966 bus for 10 dollars from Bob, a gentleman we met a church.

Our pastor randomly stated to a gathering that both Bob’s family and mine were bus owners. Ray (son) had a long conversation with Bob about our Bus (1972 Transporter) and asked if we could go look at his. Bob invited us out and Ray loved the old rust split window instantly. Bob spoke of how he parked it in that spot in the late 80s and it hasn’t moved since. He even tried to scrap it once, but the scrap guy told him the bus wasn’t worth the work. Ray asked Bob if he wanted to sell it and he said no – Bob said I want to give it to you. I told Bob we couldn’t do that and asked him how much he wanted. Before Bob could answer, Ray asked if he would take 300 for it. That was all the money he had in his wallet in his mother’s purse. Bob said no – the price would be 10 dollars.

Friday, Ray paid his 10 dollars. Now we are figuring the best approach to get it out of the field and what to do with it. The bus is as rusty as they come, but absolutely complete. I told Ray he needs to save his dollars as pennies won’t get this done. Ray and Bob are the best of buds now.

and when that was posted, it brought out this photo, that the guy on the tractor in the background is the grandfather of the kid on front of the van, and had just pulled the van out of the barn with the tractor, giving it a new life, but keeping it in the family
